Default flash drive doesn't appear until one hour

Wondering if someone else had this problem. My flash disk is about 2 years old, usb 2, works fine on my desktop but when I plug into my laptop it won't appear in explorer- until after about an hour, each time.

I tried reformatting it, testing it with software, uninstalling in device manager, same..

The laptop won't completely startup or shutdown with the drive.
